JASON STEVENSON/ We have all the paperwork which is signed by the general manager of the property. We have forwarded the necessary paperwork to the corporate offices of the property. They have yet to pay us the commissions owed for the groups stay. The group did leave the property early. They were very unhappy with the condition of the property and complained about the management. Quality-Stay 4 Less has made every effort to handle this without legal action. Executive offices has demanded payment and we not only plan on taking legal action, but also the necessary steps to ensure that no other third party is handled in this manner. Our company has sent Road Star Inn incident reports to try to resolve any issue that they may have had with our clients. We have also sent our clients T& B Sales, the same incident report.
